Our Story

A story of passion and expertise

One Saturday afternoon in 1998, standing in a derelict button factory, Beryl Henderson made a decision. This was the place where she would create N1 – a truly life enhancing garden centre in the heart of London.

Beryl, a passionate gardener living in north London, had a vision for a new kind of garden centre. She wanted to create a life enhancing place that would transform the urban gardening experience. An urban garden centre with quality plants, grown by specialist growers, and friendly, knowledgeable staff.

20 years on, N1 continues to strive for excellence, winning several awards for outstanding customer service, and in 2013 and 2014 N1 was awarded best boutique garden centre at the industry’s Garden Retail Awards.

Connecting to the urban gardening movement, N1 continues to attract innovative suppliers within horticulture, design and home accessories, making urban gardening accessible and truly inspirational to both the knowledgeable and the beginner gardener alike.
Staying true to Beryl’s vision, N1 is a place where urban gardening is made possible every day, through passion and expertise.
